Professional fees refer to the fees charged by a person considered “professional”, such as an attorney, an accountant, a doctor, an engineer, a financial planner, an appraiser, a management consultant, or another. A professional fee paid to a doctor or medical provider is likely to be charged according to the services provided or the procedure performed. Most doctors have a schedule of services that they offer to their patients, as well as a corresponding rate scale for those services. Insurance companies pay a large portion of payments for medical services, so payment may not be required at the time the service is provided; however, if insurance coverage is used, the medical provider will generally require confirmation of coverage before providing the service or performing the procedure.
In an emergency situation, if, for example, you are completely broke and have legal problems, there are definitely ways to get free legal aid with some kind of community service. Lawyers are legal professionals who are members of a Bar Association where they have the right to provide legal advice and representation services to their clients.
